    None, really, if you can afford it this game is awesome

    Summary

    I've played this game since 2003 and haven't regretted it since. It is truly one of a kind and has its own special way of making you feel like you are part of a large galaxy where things are happening all the time. It takes a while to get in to, definitely give it at least the 8 hour free trial and bear in mind that this is only the tip of the iceberg. PvP Combat is easy to get in to but takes a lifetime to master, requiring hot reflexes and expansive 3D spatial awareness. The first person perspective and twitch controls put *you* at the helm of a futuristic spaceship. Levels of immersion are plentiful with an entirely unique writing system (the language of Galactic Trade Standard) a massive backstory and roleplay forums. Player competitions include weekly nation wars, duel ladders, race track monthly winners, and personal Vendettas. After you've played 25 hours you have the option of joining the PCC, a group of players dedicated to improving the game by adding content. I have submitted 64 missions which have been added to the game so far involving various storylines, so come play and experience what myself and others have created as the game world continues to grow and evolve!

    Recent major changes include the Android version of the game and the addition of craftable player-owned capital ships. The crafting tree to create a Cap Ship takes months, literally, and we're all still racing each other to be the first.
